During this time when faces are half-masked, photographer Charles Esser unmasks faces in common, found objects.  His Rogue Gallery collection stretches the human penchant for anthropomorphism.

Wonderfully Made is a series of paintings by Melissa Patrello. Pieced together in squares, each painting is an unruly grid that mimics the interwoven structure of the canvas underneath. Two-dimensional scenes are depicted in patchwork narratives that evoke mountainous cityscapes. In appreciation of our anatomical intricacies, Patrello uses woven cloth as subject matter, weaving awkward shapes and fleshy, floral tones into mirrored facets of her identity.
